What's New in Version 3.0.3
- restored ability to get user location in the Maps module in iOS 8
- fixed minor issues when logging in and out from the settings screen
- fixed a crash in the Events module when Ongoing button is tapped very quickly after the load
- adjusted the expand/collapse animation in the stops list on the Maps module
this app works well - intermittently. the rest of the time I'm lucky if the bus stops and routes populate. and they usually don't, which wastes my time and is endlessly frustrating. also, why isn't the SPECK garage listed under buildings?? it's not a classroom building but it's still an important building on campus. finding a bus that goes to speck is hard because speck is only listed on the Spots menu, which hardly ever populates.
Bottom line, this app is woefully incomplete and super buggy. Please pull it together or remove it. If someone depends on this app they are SOL.
I use it primarily to see bus arrivals/departures from my stops and to check TRACS. TRACS forums are useless through the app- you cannot post from the app, only read others' posts. I have an online class that requires intense involvement, and I am continually frustrated by my inability to post. I don't have problems with the bus routes, but I'm not often in a hurry that necessitates the buses being absolutely accurate.
Gets the job done. Easy to access emails, class schedules, and your TRACS. Only complaint is the tram map but I know it is still a work in progress
